BEAUTIFUL, QUIET, EXCLUSIVE AND FURNISHED. 4000 SQ' HOME

Guanajuato House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10+

This house was built by a wealthy lawyer 10 years ago using the best quality materials. When I first saw the house I was in awe. We bought it as our retirement home. When my husband and I go to Guanajuato on vacation, we hire this wonderful woman who cooks for us and does the house cleaning, as she will do it for you also. This beautiful home has lovely views and it is located in the most exclusive and safest family area in the City of Guanajuato. Within walking distance you will find the shopping mall, post office, pharmacy, ATM/Bank, Mega grocery store, restaurants and much more. This cul-de-sac area “Pozuelos” has security guards at the entrance 24 hours a day.

You can be downtown in less than 10 minutes taking a taxi or driving yourself. In the downtown area you’ll find churches, markets, restaurants and shops scattered throughout the callejones and plazuelas You’ll enjoy the many narrow streets and go through many tunnels scattered all over town. You will love this town.

A Short History of Guanajuato, Mexico: Nestled in the mountain of the Sierra de Guanajuato is the picturesque city of Guanajuato. Its name originates from the word Quanaz-juato which, in the indigenous dialect of the region, meant 'Place of the Frogs' - because indigenous tribes thought the place was fit only for frogs!

Little could they have known that the Spanish would later find rich veins of silver and extract from them vast fortunes to build a magnificent city and such beautiful churches such as La Valenciana, built between 1765 and 1786. Today, the mines are still among the richest in the world.

Guanajuato is a city of incredible charm, as is almost immediately obvious as entering by the way of the subterranean main street. The street follows the original course of the Guanajuato river running beneath the city for almost three kilometers. Guanajuato is a lost nugget in the middle of Mexico and where you find the Mexican people, living a very humble, easy going and neighborly life style, and where time means nothing.

Guanajuato- Some Sites and Doings: To navigate the city, you have to go on foot, or take a taxi which are everywhere. There are hundreds of callejones (alleyways), the most famous of which is Callejon del Beso (Alley of the Kiss).

The local romantic legend says this callejon is so narrow that lovers each standing on a balcony on either side of the alley, can reach across the alley and exchange a kiss.

The alleyways are a part of the route of the popular tradition of the Callejoneadas, when student choral groups stroll the alleyways of Guanajuato at night, strumming their guitars and serenading the local populous.

Guanajuato is hosted to the International Cervantino Festival, named after Miguel de Cervantes, author of 'Don Quijote'. Artist from around the world perform and recitals concerts, plays, ballet, modern dance, opera, and art exhibits.

Every inch in the Theater Juarez in the main plaza is carved, painted, sculpted or embossed in beautiful, truly awe-inspiring display of art of the period, built in 1903.

Guanajuato and It's Surroundings: Guanajuato is located in the middle of Mexico, approximately 5 hours by car from the Pacific Ocean or the Golf of Mexico, two hours from Guadalajara and 4 hours from Mexico City. The toll roads which are fast, are almost like the freeways in the USA. The old roads are rough, curvy, pot holed and slow due to trucks. However, this is the best way to see the very small towns of the surrounding area. Guanajuato is within an hours drive from Zacatecas, Leon, Irapuato, Celaya, Salamanca, San Miguel de Allende, Dolores Hidalgo. These towns, as well as Guanajuato, are historical to Mexican history and each has an ambiance all its own.

The International airport is located in Leon, 20 minutes drive time.

The altitude of Guanajuato es 6,583 feet. Guanajuato is also knows for its restaurant, which are very plentiful throughout the town and all at very reasonable prices.

Guanajuato is the home of the Universidad de Guanajuato. One of the main Universities in Mexico.

Viva Guanajuato!

Guanajuato is a cultural hub. At the University of Guanajuato and other institutions, tourists from all over the world come for long periods of time to take painting, art, Mexican cooking, Spanish classes and enjoy the great weather. There are many museums, theater presentations, events for everyone to enjoy. Guanajuato is the hometown of former President of Mexico Vicente Fox and the famous painter Diego Rivera. El Festival Cervantino happens every October and where artists from all over the world perform and recitals concerts, plays, ballet, modern dance, opera, and art exhibits. The town is a maze of cobblestone streets and alleys that wind around steep hillsides upon a small ravine, opening into vistas of beautiful churches and small plazas. In Mercado Hidalgo Market you can find leather, delicate sculptured wax, metal, textiles, beautiful pottery and much more. One time I was going to buy something in a small shop, but later I could not find that shop. It really is a maze.

Other Activities: Cultural Events including Symphony, Plays and Musical Events, etc.
